Body kit. Drivetrain wise they're the same... unless you get a WS6, which has some suspension changes.

The base TA is really not worth it over a formula unless you want some creature comforts, leather and ttops. I believe the only performance differences come between the formula/TA and the WS6 package. The ws6 has a 3.23 gear and suspension differences along with a better catback.

IMO no it is not worth the extra coin. Then again I was never into all the body skirts, wings, etc. and liked the look of the Formula better. I also didn't mind not getting the leather seats. Just personal preference.

I owned a 2000 WS6 Formula before my Cobra.

Fuck you. I looked for a real WS6 formula forever. Just made my own eventually lol.
Found it in TX (I lived in NJ at the time). They were pretty rare. 232 or so made that year if i remember correctly.

it is a 02, t top, M6. 97K miles (65K on new motor and trans with receipts) stock besides wheels, hurst shifter, skip shift.

if the TA had 3.42 what do the formulas come with?

based on that info, what would a good price be? i think it's priced well but just want to see what you guys think it should be priced at.

Same gear.

Been away from the car too long, not sure what they "should" be selling for these days.
